    ASUS has released a new series of VENTO TA-D chassis. Comprised of the TA-D1, TA-D2, TA-D3 and TA-D5 (released in April this year), this series of chassis utilizes a sturdy yet aesthetically pleasing design that incorporates various innovations with considerate design for easy installations. Additionally, the VENTO TA-D Series also provides an advanced ventilation system that maximizes thermal efficiency for key components – especially the CPU and graphics card.

    Excellent Ventilation for Maximized Thermal Efficiency
    The VENTO TA-D Series supports both front and rear 12cm large fans for maximized airflow – allowing it to meet the Intel TAC compliance for excellent thermal efficiency. Once the front fan draws in fresh air into the casing, the heat generated from the system will be expelled immediately via the rear fan – providing efficient airflow for cooler temperatures; while CAG 1.1 side vents with air ducts provide cooler air from outside the chassis that lowers CPU and video card temperatures. Through the adjustable air-duct, airtight contact with the CPU is ensured to efficiently funnel the cool air towards the CPU while unique rear venting holes enhances ventilation around the add-on cards. This optimized thermal efficiency enables long and continuous operations for the most powerful processing platforms and increases overall system performance and stability.

    Considerate Design for Easy Installation
    For the sake of convenience, the intelligently located USB ports are separated from each other – allowing users to easily connect multiple USB devices without mutual interference. Other user-friendly features of the VENTO TA-D Series include: both side and front vents are also equipped with dust filters to help keep the system clean; folded metal edges that protect fingers from scrapes and cuts; a spring-operated optical drive door for quick access to optical devices, and thumbscrews for easy removal of the side panel.

    Exquisite ID Design Details
    For the VENTO TA-D1, the matte black-coated paint finish exudes a subtle charm, while the lower faceplate is comprised of a shiny metallic-like surface with the innovative multi-colored power LED. This LED will shine red as a power indicator throughout system operations, and a blue hue will flash whenever the harddisk is being read – creating a pleasing ambiance when in use. The TA-D2, on the other hand, presents an aesthetically pleasing glossy-black finish, while the LED HDD indicator is located at the top of the chassis; and the power LED is found on the bottom. The TA-D3’s distinguishing aspect comes from the blue LED light that surrounds the power button when switched on, and flashes red when the HDD is in use. The matte black finishing with a bold yellow strip on the front bezel presents itself boldly and lends an air of distinguished computing.

    Ive never thought much of the Asus cases ive seen for sale but these look pretty sweet,
    The Ta - D2 looks the best imo.

    Cheers

    And they all look pretty mediocre. TA-D1 looks somewhat okay.

    Very, very mediocre, can't tell them apart from Rosewill/Foxconn $30-$50 cases. Probably good for an office pc.

    Well... the gigabyte vs asus war... in terms of cases Gigabyte wins hands down. ASUS need to really fix up their cases, its funny how they make super nice looking high end mobos, and yet don't have cases which would really suit them.

    ASUS seems to not care about the look of their cases...afaik that is a generic chassis with a different facade slapped on the front.

    C'mon asus, make a case that looks good with your own products like Gigabyte does *rolls eyes*

    Yeah....those things were pretty sweet looking. Although they reminded me of alienware cases more.

    anyways, these things are ugly. Not something you would want to put your $250+ Asus board in. =/. Maybe add something with a side-panel to show off the hardware inside, rather than stare at a blank outside.

    I was never a fan of the Vento cases tbh, my mate had one I though it sucked hardcore. - these ones showcased here I suppose are a little more basic. possibly an OEM manufacturers wet dream who doesnt want to resort using the discusding old beige cases or for somebody who doesnt care so long as shes able to play music, watch pr0n & access the internets.

    - Yeah we al look for different things in cases - some are more flamboyant & want it lit up like santa claus hitting an eletric pilon where as others prefer a more straight forward 'omg its a box' approach.

    They look alright...I would like to see better pictures though, inside mainly as looks don't really matter to me as much when it comes to cases.
